Cheesy Garlic Bread

Cheesy Garlic Bread

We love spaghetti… or any meal that compliments this garlic bread! Soup, salad, frozen lasagna (yes, I feed my family frozen lasagna… don’t judge me),  pasta, grilled meat, you get the idea.

The other day we were having spaghetti for dinner and I planned ahead and bought french bread which was the only ingredient I thought I was missing to make this garlic bread. When I got home to the kitchen I discovered that I was completely out of shredded mozzarella cheese.  Not wanting to disappoint the family,  I had the bright idea of using the little packages of string cheese that we had in the refrigerator. So I dutifully weighed out 8 ounces of string cheese on my kitchen scale.  All was going well until I decided it was a good idea to hand grate the cheese instead of getting my food processor dirty.  Let’s just say that I do NOT recommend this! Grating string cheese on a hand grater is not a good plan.  But when dinner was served, I’d say the raw fingers were worth it!

The next day we were having leftover spaghetti for dinner.  My son had a friend over and as I was dishing up the evening meal I asked “Who wants Cheesy Garlic Bread”?

Much to our surprise, our guest replied, “What’s Cheesy Garlic Bread”? to which my boy exclaimed “HEAVEN”!

Enough said…

Love,
